Portfolio > Commissions

Thank you for your interest in commissioning a painting from me! I will be accepting a limited number of commissions for the remainder of 2020, please email me to start a conversation.

The paintings that you see on Instagram and on my website are generally watercolor and acrylic on panel, but I also offer work on paper.

Paintings on panel are cradled and stick out one inch from the wall. They arrive ready to hang. You may request the painting arrive uncradled; the panel is 5mm thick.

Paintings on paper are carefully packed, and arrive as is.


Paintings are available in the following sizes; quotes for additional sizes are available upon request.

8in x 10in for $340
9in x 12in for $440
11in x 14in for $540
16in x 20in for $740


$20 shipping to addresses within the United States (additional fees for 16in x 20in paintings). Paintings are shipped through the US Postal Service. They are packaged to industry standards and are fully insured.

Paintings shipped to international addresses are also carefully packaged and fully insured, but rates vary by destination.


I will prepare an invoice for you that notes the size and surface you've selected, applicable taxes and shipping. I require a 50% installment payment to get started. The payment is non-refundable.

I will also require your photograph(s). It is helpful for you to send a few shots of the space you'd like me to paint; try taking photos at different times of day, in portrait or in landscape mode. Don't worry if your home does not look like "my style" - my method of painting edits and exaggerates, no matter what the source material.


I aim to have paintings delivered to you within 8 -10 weeks upon receipt of your photos and your payment. I send along in-progress photos of your photo was I make it, which allows clients to ask for adjustments and changes along the way. Once the painting is complete and both parties are satisfied with it, I invoice the client for the remaining balance and ship the painting within 3 - 5 days.

USPS is experiencing shipping delays at this time and I expect that to continue. If you would like to gift a painting this holiday season, consider placing your order as early as you can.

Typically, I do not accept any commissions between October 15 and December 31 in order to accommodate the demands of the holiday season. There will likely be a period of time where I do not accept commissions later in the fall, but the dates may change to reflect the realities of life at the time. If you are interested in a commission - especially one you may want to give as a gift - please reach out sooner rather than later.

Again, thank you for your interest! Please email me to start a conversation.
